An RTS where you take control of a civilization in the dark ages and take them up into the gunpowder age, with emphasis on unit production and battle.

Or maybe an RPG where there's been a nuclear war and the player character has to make sure that his community survives by getting an artifact to create water, only there's mutants and he has to fight them too.

Or an RPG where you customize your character...and the goal is to recover several artifacts to combine into one super weapon to defeat the powerful creature who is bringing fear to the land. If you choose to be on the good side. If you choose to be evil, you must recover the artifacts to create the super weapon for your master to weild...or for YOU to weild.

Either way, with battles you can try to run, talk yuor way out of it, or battle. And some minor diplomatic missions...and other side quests.

Make a game where you click on hordes of enemies to hack them to pieces and get powerful stuff so you can hack up more hordes of enemies by clicking on them without any plot or anything to get in the way of clicking on hordes and hordes of enemies!!!! We don't have nearly enough of those!!!!

Or, you could make an epic thriller transcending gender, age, race, and nationality differences that will awe and inspire all who capture a glimpse of its glory and be a bestseller for generations after your death. Yeah, on second thought, that's a way better idea. Do that one.

A humble opinion: though originality is usually just taking elements from games, books, movies, tv, etc. that you enjoyed in the past, it's still a good policy to come up with your own ideas. You'll be way better off as far as having the motivation to finish it, and at the end, it will be YOUR baby, YOUR creation, and inherently better than if you took someone else's idea and crafted a game around it.

Or, if you find your imagination currently out of order, make a game about beef stew.

an RPG where you start out as a paige for parliament, and start out doing missions like getting coffee for people, and then keep gaining stature and doing more important missions until you become prime minister or something. a politically satirical RPG.

How about a mech warrior or armored core type game where you can customize your mech, grow super powerful, and then crush the opposition.

Or an RTS similar to SC IMAGE(cool0000.gif)

If you just want to make something simple and you're not after RPG or RTS, why not think about doing a computer version of a real life game eg: chess, patience/solitaire, backgammon, scrabble, monopoly (although watch out for copyright issues with games like scrabble & monopoly). Or make a quiz, a crossword puzzle or a collection of different puzzle type games. Alternatively, you could make new versions of the early computer games eg: pong, breakout or tetris.

How about a game about some people who got thrown down into a cavernous dungeon by an ominous empire and then they find their way out and onto the surface? Then you could have a sequel about a war between the empire and the exiled cave-dwellers!

And afterwards, you could extend it by making the cave-dwellers the empire's only allies against, I don't know, aliens! Or monsters! Or a plague!

Or Starcraft Gost? Possibly that type of spinnoff on one of Spidwebs games?

Or you could spend five years making a graphics engine and then have the player run around a randomly generated universe clicking on things that cause random events. Oh, and there'd be a complicated statistic system but there's absolutely no documentation explaining what any of the statistics do, and the names are totally misleading.

An adventure game! Create a guy named "The Weird Guy" and have him wake up in a locked room. Then have him collect pieces of information from all sorts of sources. Who is he, what has happened, what the heck is going on in general? Make the surrounding world suitably weird, but keep it real. Add a major plot (or several), but keep it secret for as long as possible.

I can't help but love these games. One more is never too much.

Yes, especially if your poker buddies are huge, sweaty Turks.

How about a game where you have a paddle on either side of the screen which you can move up and down and a ball bouncing in between the two paddles, with the idea being to get the ball past the other player's paddle?

A truly original concept.

You might also try for some sort of maze where you steer around a weird face-like ball alternately chasing and running away from ghosts.

Make a game in which you are a spaceship. Once you've got that, you've already got people lining up to pay you money.
